Professional Bikini Waxing
Bikini waxing is a great way to remove unwanted hair from your bikini area, and has many benefits that traditional shaving does not. Fountain of You is pleased to offer professional bikini waxing services to our clients in Melbourne, FL and all of Brevard County. Our professional, personable team members are trained and experienced, and will make your bikini wax as quick and painless as possible. Whether you’re going to a pool party, planning a romantic getaway, or simply want a better alternative to shaving, bikini waxing is a fantastic option.
What is Bikini Waxing?
A professional bikini wax leaves your skin much smoother and softer than shaving does. This is because waxing extracts the hair at its root, while shaving can only reach hair above the skin. Waxing also removes dead skin cells which allows new, smooth skin to surface. It is naturally more difficult to achieve a smooth and hairless finish on the bikini area when using a razor because pubic hair is thick and coarse, unlike the hair on other areas of your body. Waxing is an excellent option if your goal is to achieve smooth skin around your bikini area.
How Long Does Bikini Waxing Last?
Waxing is also superior to shaving because the results last much longer. On average it takes 3-6 weeks for hair to grow back after a bikini wax, unlike shaving where your hair grows back in a day or two. Think of all the time you can save by opting for a bikini wax! Not to mention you will be able to avoid the dreaded razor rash if you choose to wax instead of shave.
The process of getting a bikini wax is fairly simple and fast. Once you communicate your preferred style and discuss any concerns or questions, the waxing technician will apply warm wax to the areas you desire hair removal, apply a strip of cloth, and remove the hair as quickly and painlessly as possible. Depending on how much hair you want removed, this process can take either seconds or a few minutes. If you are concerned about the discomfort, you can take an over the counter pain reliever before your appointment, but trust that the momentary sting will be worth it!
How to Prepare for Bikini Waxing:
- Allow your pubic hair to grow to about 1/4 inch so the wax can properly grip it.
- Make sure to inform your waxing technician if you have any allergies to waxing creams or gels, or if you have a skin condition that could be irritated by waxing.
- Avoid stimulants like caffeine and alcohol for a few hours before your waxing because they can tighten your pores, making the process more difficult.
Although bikini waxing is superior to shaving, laser hair removal is the best way to permanently remove unwanted hair. Bikini waxing can end up costing more in the long run than laser hair removal because after waxing the hair grows back. A few sessions of laser hair removal will eliminate your unwanted hair permanently, leaving you with one less thing to worry about maintaining. Additionally, compared to waxing, laser hair removal is relatively painless. At Fountain of You we offer different types of laser hair removal services, and we will help you determine the best option to fit your needs.
